'Frieze' as a play in two acts: a conversation with Matthew Slotover
18.00 Wednesday 12 November
Matthew Slotover will speak, in conversation with Simon Rees (CAC Café Talks curator), about the founding of Frieze magazine in the early-1990s, the development of the magazine over the last 17 years, and the founding of the Frieze Art Fair. They will discuss the magazine and the fair’s places in the cultural process – along with Cool-Britannia, the YBAs, and the opening of Tate Modern – that has cemented London as a European centre for contemporary art. And will reflect upon the likely impact of the global economic downturn on the market aspects of the art system.


Matthew Slotover founded frieze magazine with co-publisher Amanda Sharp in 1991, and was inaugural editor until 1998. Frieze is considered Europe‘s leading contemporary art and culture publication and maintains an international readership with offices in London, New York and Berlin. Following on from the success of frieze, Matthew and publishing partner Amanda Sharp founded the Frieze Art Fair in 2003. Moving into its seventh year the fair is regarded as one of the world’s best known and most influential art fairs. The fair features leading galleries from 25 countries, representing over 1000 artists, and is complimented by the critically acclaimed artistic program, Frieze Projects. Under Slotover‘s co-directorship the Frieze Art Fair now boasts visitor numbers of over 60,000 per year, with a year on year increase in annual sales.In 1999 Matthew co-founded Counter Editions, with curators Carl Freedman and Neville Wakefield. Counter Editions publishes affordable limited editions prints and multiples by well known contemporary artists, such as Tracey Emin, Gary Hume and Sarah Lucas. Through Frieze Matthew has also pursued other publishing projects, including the books: Frieze Projects: Artists‘ Commissions and Talks 2003 -2005; Frieze Art Fair Yearbook (annual); What the Butler Saw - The Selected Writings of Stuart Morgan; All Tomorrow‘s Parties - Photographs of Andy Warhol’s Factory, by Billy Name; and Designed by Peter Saville, a retrospective book of Saville‘s graphic design.
